An online service I use daily recently invited me to alpha test their updated mobile app. It was a fun an interesting experience I thought I’d share to the best of my ability, without breaking the NDA. The process was incentivized by offering Amazon gift cards after completing different milestones.
Last month, Heavy Metal magazine announced it would be bringing color versions of Jack Kirby’s iconic Lord of Light (and later Operation Argo) art to print the very first time. Before that happens though, io9 is proud to reveal some of the images — as well as how you can get your hands on prints of it at SDCC this…
All the creatures of the nightlife were out on June 4 at Brooklyn’s Kinfolk for the nudest fashion show Studio@Gawker has ever thrown. The June 4 party — heralding the second season premiere of Skin Wars, GSN’s mind-blowing body painting competition hosted by Rupaul — attracted drag queens, media chatterboxes, and a…
Hey, Joel, let me first identify what is broadly true in your post. Thanks for using Kinja, by the way. I’m glad this is now all out in the open.
If this video doesn't get you going, you're dead inside and we can't be friends. Florian Renner made this short animation, Retrowave, as an ode to the style of the 1980's. It basically combines the worlds of Back to the Future and Tron by turning the DeLorean into a Light Cycle on The Grid.

Rich touched on this last night but I want to elaborate more - I don't think it's his job to flesh out comments/ find the smart material our commenters are capable of.

Last night Gawker Media held its annual all-hands meeting, which brought together all of our rapidly growing departments in an overly crowded physical space. We reflected on the year prior, meditated on the year to come, and asked a shit-ton of questions to justify why we continue to dedicate ourselves to the…
"Use these tips to grow your Legend!" reads the subject line of the latest missive from Bungie, creators of the newly released Destiny. Aside from vaguely sounding like a penis enlargement euphemism, their tips are pretty spot on. Too bad that they aren't very helpful.
J&L Game, one of my favorite game stores as a teenager, has vacated its iconic location on Elizabeth Street in Chinatown. Though relocated for some time now, this was the first time I've seen my old institution as a shell of its former self with my own eyes, and boy was it jarring.
I don't know much about Brigador, but what I see in this trailer is all I really need to be captivated. Let me count the ways.
Early last month, James Blake hosted BBC Radio One's residency by 1-800-DINOSAUR, where he played a beautiful track named Bloke by a mysterious fellow named Simon Tallywhacker (which is a UK euphemism for penis - just saying). With no online presence or pretense, beat heads speculated on Simon's true identity. Was he…
